Seasonal allergies and motor vehicle wrecks

Most drivers are aware that many different factors can play a role in a crash, such as drowsy driving, the use of intoxicating substances, weather conditions, and the recklessness of others. However, there are certain risk factors that may be overlooked, even by extremely responsible drivers. For example, many people may not realize that seasonal allergies can factor into a motor vehicle collision in different ways. As a driver, it is important for you to be mindful of this issue if you struggle with allergies.

Work-related traffic injuries

Accidents involving traffic occur in a plethora of ways, from drunk driving crashes on suburban roads to motorcycle collisions on the freeway. However, some people are also injured or lose their lives while driving or riding in a vehicle as part of their job responsibilities. Traffic accidents can take place while a person is working in many ways, whether someone is hurt driving a semi truck, operating a taxi, or even just running errands. Moreover, when a work-related traffic accident happens, those involved may sustain significant injuries, even if they are fortunate enough to survive the collision.

"Cannabis Conversation" reveals driver attitudes toward marijuana

We warn drivers from an early age not to drink and get behind the wheel. Ahead of prom season, for example, many high schools put on demonstrations about the dangers of driving under the influence of alcohol. While drinking and driving is still a major cause of accidents on the road, no one can legitimately say they were unaware it is dangerous to drive drunk.

Can nighttime glare cause an accident?

There are a myriad of risk factors associated with traffic crashes, such as ice on the roads, speeding, and the use of a cell phone behind the wheel. However, other accident causes pose serious risks even though they are often not given as much attention. For example, nighttime glare may lead to a motor vehicle wreck. Whether you regularly drive at night or even occasionally take to the road during nighttime hours, it is pivotal to recognize some of the dangers associated with driving in the dark and focus on safety.

Tips for handling the family dog in divorce

Think the family pet can't cause issues in divorce? When researchers at Georgia Regents University asked hundreds of people who they would save if given the choice between a dog or a human, nearly half (40 percent) said they would save their pet over the life of a stranger if forced to choose.

ATVs and crashes on public roads

When many people think of ATVs, they picture an off-road environment. While it is true that these types of vehicles are most frequently used for such purposes, whether the driver is working on a farm, hunting, or exploring the wilderness, there are times when some ATV operators find themselves on the road. Unfortunately, those driving these types of vehicles are especially vulnerable with respect to motor vehicle collisions. When someone driving an ATV is struck by a larger vehicle, they may lose their life or sustain devastating injuries.
